Yorker (1958) - Herning, DENMARK - APR 6, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tiny off-white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet with plenty of malt, yeast, caramel, and a hint of liquorice. Flavour is malty, yeasty and slightly vinous.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a deep clear copper with a big creamy beige head that recedes slowly to a solid cap. Aroma is very sweet with lots of cane sugar and caramel malts. Plenty of booze soaked fruits, plums and raisins especially. Taste is more of the same though its actually a little less sweet than I was expecting. There is lots of cola-like sweetness with cane sugar, various dark fruits and vanilla. There is more of the Belgian yeast coming through which evens the sweetness a bit. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy and well carbonated. I really thought this was going to be a diabetes-inducing beer given the title and the nose but the taste is more balanced than that. Really solid Belgian dark.

Enjoyed on tap as 1 oz sampler before my friends showed up at Bad Apple in Chicago, IL. Appearance like cola, huge bubbly tan head, cloudy coke like brown. Aroma mostly of sugar, light fruit, definitely has that burnt sugar smell. Taste is very interesting, extremely sweet, retains a fruit like quality that is tropical, there is a caramel like quality to it, but it doesnt taste especially malty. The name of the beer describes the flavor pretty well. Impressive.

trevor211 (1679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle at SIBF. Pours a cola brown. Rum and raw sugar on the nose. Boozy sweet flavor, with some wood, a good amount of rum, and dark fruit. It has a bit of a harsh palate, though -- somewhat tinny. This was a bit of a disappointment.
